Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo at the next Woburn CoffeeHouse

At our next CoffeeHouse we will have as our featured perfomer, Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo.

Boston-based Nigerian-American performing artist and award winning poet Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo is at the forefront of creating a new artistic genre that gracefully interweaves spoken word poetry with jazz, blues, gospel and neo-soul influenced song. Embracing the power of words from writers such as Sonia Sanchez, Patricia Smith and Alice Walker, Iyeoka is a powerful songstress whose lyrical prowess invokes the spirit of the renowned soul-shaker Nina Simone.A story teller to the core, Iyeoka's hope-filled poems come from within and build momentum withtruth transformed into songs that reemerge as unique, emotionally complex gifts to her audience, touching on a wide range of issues-love, women, culture, struggle, relationships, among many others.

This Woburn CoffeeHouse will take place on February 27th from 7-9pm at the North Suburban YMCA. For more information, please click here.

The Woburn CoffeeHouse is made possible by the Woburn Arts/Culture Initiative with Northwest Suburban Health Alliance/CHNA 15 DoN funds from Lahey Clinic.
